The Carrera Heritage Calibre 6 timepiece is the perfect expression of TAG Heuers 150 years watchmaking heritage, and echoes the refined elegance of a bygone era. The dial is a work of art with its stunning traditional flinqué texture. The dial is further enhanced by the sophisticated spiral effect on the seconds counter, and the polished hands and numerals.
The Carrera Heritage line is a range of automatic watches and Chronographs that take the base template of the Carrera 1887 and add a “flinque” dial finish, bold coloured numerals and hands and a “heritage” font to the sub-dials and tachy bezel. In addition, TAG have designed the pushers of the Carrera Heritage to something closer to the original 1964 Carrera.
The overall effect is a very effective and gives the model a distinctive look within the ever-expanding Carrera range.
Interestingly, while the watch was shown for the first time to the International press at Baselworld, the watch has been on sale in Chinese market since January my guess is that it was prioritised in China due to the tight supplies of the Carrera 1887 to support TH’s push into this increasingly important market.
